A simple blood test can help identify people who are at high risk of dying within the month after non-cardiac surgery, a study by McMaster University researchers has found. Knowing who is at risk through the test called Troponin T (a protein marker of heart injury) can help physicians target patients who need enhanced observation or interventions, says the major study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Currently, troponin levels are not commonly measured...

BERLIN, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Research presented this week at the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry Congress and Laboratory Medicine showed that using a lower diagnostic threshold for troponin improves clinical outcomes and patient survival in patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes. Troponin is a protein found inside of heart cells that is released when they are damaged by ischemia or reduced blood supply. Cardiac troponin is regarded by clinicians as one...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Novel research illustrates that elevated levels of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) or I (cTnI) in patients who had angioplasty indicate a higher risk of all-cause mortality in addition to long-term harmful events such as heart attack.  Routine monitoring of these protein levels subsequent to nonemergent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) might improve long-term outcomes for these patients. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, more than one...

New research shows that elevated levels of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) or I (cTnI) in patients who had angioplasty indicate a higher risk of all-cause mortality and long-term adverse events such as heart attack. Routine monitoring of these protein levels following nonemergent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) could improve long-term outcomes for these patients. Details of the analysis are available online in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, a peer-reviewed journal of The...

Patients who underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery and had elevated levels of the cardiac enzymes creatine kinase or troponin in the 24 hours following surgery had an associated intermediate and long-term increased risk of death, according to a study in the February 9 issue of JAMA. "About 400,000 coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures are performed annually in the United States, giving public health significance to factors that affect the outcome of these procedures," the...

Researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine have found that even small amounts of damage to heart muscle during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is associated with an increased risk of death, even among patients who initially do well following surgery. The study is published in the February 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Small elevations of troponin and creatine phosphokkinase "“ chemicals called enzymes that are released by heart muscle cells...
